I agree with you. Indeed it's normal for good textbooks to be regularly
revised. The Short History falls into this class.
I object to perfect-bound volumes on acid paper because they're
impermanent. But this problem is only loosely related to the design of the
page, choice of font, &c.
David who wishes that all his books were designed to last 1,000 years, were
bound in calf, and that he had a library worthy of them.
